I am told it is being refurbished and the refurbishment was due to finish end of last year, although passed recently and perhaps it's still remains closed. Would love to know, as I would... More

After a long day and a long drive all the seasoned traveler wants is some nice food and then a good nights sleep. This did not disappoint, the food was good the service was good albeit the waiting staff in the evening were not overly communicative. All be it though very nice.

My friends and I came for afternoon tea yesterday. The food was nice and they catered well for the veggie in our group. However the service we received was very poor. We had to ask for teaspoons, sugar and jam which should have been provided without having to ask. Despite the establishment being relatively quiet, the service was very slow... More

I had a breakfast two day in a row, during my stay in Manor Hotel. Interior & surroundings: Manor Hotel looks great, however its walls scream for a renovation, there is no difference with RiverBar. Internal decor does not catch attention... What I like was that it is surrounded by a pond that you can observe during your meal. Drawback... More

The food is great, they always have a simple menu which changes regularly and the food is well presented. We have been probably ten times and tried different things each time. They have accommodated my wife who is quite particular about what she puts in her mouth (trust me), and altered dishes for her. This Sunday I had roast pork,... More

Food is well prepared but the menu is somewhat lacking in variety when staying several days. Somewhat pricey (for Americans) compared to the pub across the street, but the location is great.

My husband and daughter and I went to the River Bar on Friday for Afternoon Tea for her BIRTHDAY. My daughter is gluten free and I only phoned them two hours before the booking time.

Today I tried this restaurant for the first time, and the experience was terrible from start to end. FIRST IMPRESSION: The place is spiders and spider webs laden. We were offered a table next to the pond area by the window at first. Quickly I saw many dead insects and spider webs so I asked to switch to a table... More

Tucked away in Newbury is the Newbury Manor Hotel, home to the River Bar restaurant. Set by the water, the River Bar offers exciting and innovative cuisine that is sourced from the best, local markets. The dining room is elegantly furnished and offers superb views of the hotel grounds. The a la carte menu offers dishes that are presented superbly, such as mushroom risotto with Sauternes jelly, sea bass with scallops and saffron mash and pork belly with toffee apples. Desserts are equally inviting; why not try the Newbury Manor Stranoffee? Three courses of this international cuisine costs an average of £35 per person.
